Baby Reflexology is a special adaptation of adult Reflexology for babies, infants and toddlers. It soothes calms and encourages balance in the body.
Research has shown that Baby Reflexology is effective in easing discomforts such as Colic, wind, Constipation, reflux, congested ears, blocked nose, teething, Asthma, Eczema, poor appetite, hyperactivity and anxiety. Reflexology is a fantastic natural option for calming babies, boosting their immune system and supporting the growing body.
Infant Colic in particular can be very stressful to deal with. A study recently carried out by the Danish Reflexology Association overseen by Danish paediatricians and GPs, documented 30 colicky babies aged between 4 to 13 weeks who were given regular Reflexology treatments. Their responses to the reflexology treatments for the alleviation of their symptoms were recorded. All of the babies in the study were significantly helped by the treatments.
Babies and children love receiving Reflexology and parents find that learning the simple techniques themselves gives them more confidence as they have an additional tool to soothe and calm their child when necessary. These techniques can be carried out in as little as 5 minutes, anywhere, at anytime, and are enjoyable to give and to receive. Results for babies are often experienced immediately and can soothe a cranky baby or help to relieve tummy pains or constipation.
It is important to note that Reflexology is a natural, gentle, complementary therapy which works in conjunction with conventional medicine. Parents should always contact their doctor if they are concerned about their babies’ health.
